R: theropod crests



Hi Jordan,
this may not be  exactly what you were asking for (guess you wanted skeletal
reconstructions) , but you may find a painting by list member Daniel Bensen
to be quite informative on the overall  shape of the crest of C. ellioti
(assuming it's correctly restored, which i think it is, since Headden's
description of the structure made me think of a similar shape);
the picture in question should be easily accessible via Daniel's site (it
depicts a couple of "Cryos" ).

cheers
Filippo
